beach destination on the way fromSwaziland to RichBay/Durban

Hi!

First just want to say thaks to everybody who write, give advises in this forum.

I use TA in preparing all of my trips, but I think that TA part about SA is one of the best. and thats great! it helps a lot!

so we are going to visit SA for 16 days in feb - march.

we are thinking about our trip plan, and we already have figered out several plans.

I think I will have a lot of questions about them later.

Just know I want to ask for advise of nice beach destination between Swaziland and Richards Bay /Durban.

We plan to spend 1.5 day in Swaziland (after Kruger) than to drive toward Richards Bay /Durban (it does not matter which place exactly as we still have not bought the tickets) with stop for 3 days on some beach (where we can swim) to have some rest.

And then we are going to take a flight from Richards Bay /Durban to PE for the second part of the trip.

so please can you recommend several nice beach places on our way from Swaziland to Richards Bay /Durban - where we can have nice time.

thanks in advance

Great beach is Cape Vidal near the very small town of St Lucia, between Swaziland and Durban.

Or Richards bay beach. This is a big town. . But I prefer Cape Vidal.

Also North of Durban is Ballito beach. That''s all I can recommend.

Just south of Richards Bay is Mtunzini.

A lovely nature reserve, lagoon, beach and forest. You can see PalmNut Vultures.

What are you looking for in a beach - nature and beach walks or swimming? Cape Vidal is not really a good beach to swim. The same goes for St Lucia, but both are very nice for beach walking in a natural setting. The beach at Richards Bay is great for swimming.
